Hillary: State Dept. ‘Instrumental in Sealing Deal’ For Lady Gaga’s Gay Pride Gig in Rome

(CNSNews.com) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Monday that the State Department played an instrumental role in “sealing the deal” for pop-rock star Lady Gaga to perform at a gay pride rally in Rome, Italy.

Clinton specifically pointed to a letter that David Thorne, the U.S. ambassador to Italy, sent to Lady Gaga urging her to participate in the event.

“And then there is the work that our embassy team in Rome has been doing,” Clinton said. “Two weeks ago they played an instrumental role in bringing Lady Gaga to Italy for a Euro Pride concert.

“Now as many of you know Lady Gaga is Italian American and a strong supporter of LGBT rights,” said Clinton. “And the organizers of the Euro Pride event desperately wanted her to perform and a letter to her from Ambassador Thorne was instrumental in sealing the deal.”

To state facts (pardon the pun) She is still with a Husband who quite dramatically cheated on her, and someone who is phobic, doesnt show the sympathy required to aid someone looking to create a celebratory outlet.

Thats the facts. How far that directly reflects back on Hillary...well...She is a Lady, and where I come from, you arent supposed to be mean to Ladies...so...its not for us to speculate, or tease, or debate...but I couldnt help myself in a Lil Jest.

Chivilry isnt dead with me...you may call it sexism if you wish...but its not acceptable to treat women, sometimes how you would treat a man. Its not Gentlemanly Conduct to be unwarrentfully rude to a Woman. Yet its perfectly alright to have the briefest of words with an unruly Man. You should always rise when a Woman enters the room, or approaches you...but its not the case for a man unless he is extremely important, or very dear to you. You pull out the chair for the Lady...you open the car door, and shut it behind her on her entry and exit...none of that need be done for a man, unless he is of great importance.
